58: Food delivery

I have spent so much time on this challenge.. It's difficulty is Superhuman AI for a reason. Anyways, could someone point out a direction for me to improve my deliveryman? Thanks.

(Oh, and I watched Bart's video after designing this half baked genome, they look similar)

Perhaps two predators, producing red-chasing Lipo-prey can solve this, like what I did..

I like that idea, I used a smart predator to stick to the red one and share energy with it as it ate the photocytes.

I don't want to redo my genome, I would like a guide on how to optimise my existing one.

Maby try reducing nutrient properties on the other cells in the red seeker to bottom and untick priority on the Lipo

Your stationary predator can only feed from one spot, and has to wait a long time for the light to come around enough times to make a delivery swimmer.

The solution I used is a lot like yours, except I made a predator swimmer that would eat photocytes, and drop these stationary feeders all around the circumference. So basically just a predator that only produces your M1 eggs, and eventually dies of old age. By then, there should be enough of the stationary delivery-swimmer-makers sitting around to complete the challenge before they die of old age too.

If you haven't incubated enough, it spawns a few predators before dying.

Optimised the split masses and angles and solved it. Patience was key, it took thousands of hours of splitting cells and dying photocytes to get it.
